Camino Primitivo

To end of camino







Paládin offers a bench and shaded rest area, as well as a fountain, the ‘fuente lavadero la sierra’, which is 20m away behind a house. To get to the fountain turn right at the first road, and then right again at the entrance to the first house, then head straight back.

The Road

Between Paladin and Peñaflor you will be walking with the río Nalón and the train tracks on your left-hand side. You will pass through the roadside villages of Puerma and Laracha. Peñaflor is on the opposite side of the river when you get to the first bridge. Once you have passed the church on the opposite side of the river, the camino immediately leaves the road to the right to follow signs in the direction of the FEVE railway station.

I wanted to spend more time in Oviedo in the morning and not push all the way to Grado. So I chose to stay here. This is a very quiet hostel and I had an incredibly comfortable nights sleep for 20€. I loved waking up to the sound of the river. I was able to wash my clothes for 4€ in the washing machine, which was much needed! I would recommend having a hearty meal before coming here if you are a budget pilgrim. The restaurant is nice, but overpriced. If you’re not on a budget it’s really comfortable, but value for the dollar is less than in other places. I ate a delicious “complete salad” and arroz con leche for 14€. I enjoyed the host Pablo very much. He was kind and attentive.

Nice pool. Fantastic rest area behind the outside dining area whith restchair hanging over the streaming water. Just dip your feet in and relax.

And no problem to get out early in the morning. Ask the staff before you go to bed how to do.

The place is nice and welcoming. However, we had quite a challenging evening, night, and morning in the albergue. The dinner was served very late (at 21) and the breakfast also (at 9). The host seemed a little drunk and a guest got so drunk that he made noise during the whole and even fell out of his upper bed. In the early morning we wanted to escape but were not able to open the gate and thus had to crawl over the fence. This is hopefully a unique experience but still very unpleasant.

The best accommodation in the 6 ways of Santiago that I did.

The room was spacious, the beds were new and the cleanliness was excellent.

The food in the restaurant is wonderful. With all their gluten free menu.

The best thing is the attention. Tatyana, Arantza and Pablo make you feel like one of the family from the moment you arrive.

I arrived as a pilgrim and left as a friend.

Villa Palatin is fabulous. Food. Bar. Fresh cotton sheets. And river hammocks where you can sit and bathe your feet in cold water.
